I am not a wine expert. My partner is. We thought we would try a wine tasting nearby.
The staff were very helpful, the variety and costs of wines ranged quite a degree with the quality.
For our tasting we were fortunate enough to be placed with Angelo.
his passion and knowledge were exceptional.
So was his knowledge which became quickly apparent.
We had a great time laughing and sharing stories.
The wine was great. Angelo was terrific.
It was the personal touch which made it so fun.

Visited this winery last December and had a great time. This visit once again did not disappoint. Host was Nick and he was super
Knowledgeable and had us start with a wine, share our thoughts and provided additional wines to sample based on how we liked the first one. Great wines at a wide range of price points.

Did Taste of the Season and Pillitteri was one of the wineries. The Food Pairing and 3 wine tastings were very good. The server - young man - was very good and did a nice briefing on all 3 wines. The Tomato Bisque Soup which was paired with the wines was delicious.

We booked a tour on the Sunday prior to Thanksgiving. The gentleman who was our guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant. He was able to show us the entire production from vines to press and fermentation. He was able to answer our questions and ensured we had a great understanding of the process.

At tasting, one of us prefers white while the other prefers red wind. Our guide was able ot set up flights so that we could enjoy our preferences. He even offered both a white ice wine and a red ice wine.

A great tour, we were happy to have been involved.

This is a top icewine producer, and the tasting was extremely comprehensive with Emily being a great host. Recommend the sparkling, whites and the 3 amazing icewines, Cab Franc, Cab Suvignon and Riesling!

In Niagara on the lake visiting family. We walked over to check out the winery. They had time available right then. Cool. Nick was our guide. He just started a few weeks ago and did fantastic. He was very knowledgable. As we are from northern Ontario we have never had this wine before. All the wines we sampled were excellent. I think this is our new favourite wine. Bought some wine to bring home.
Will be a regular ordering from their website.

We had a tour of the winery and we loved the explanation of the wine making process. We had a taste of the grapes and lots of information shared, and our questions answered.

We then proceeded to visit inside, the barrels, and had a fantastic tasting of a series of different wines. The was the best of our tours in the NOTL region.
